Students earned Work Study Credit for being employed.
Physical Education at the YMCA
Students participate in physical fitness and sports related activities at the Downtown Lohse Family YMCA for elective credit in physical education. Students can earn ¼ credit for every 25 hours of physical activity time logged at the YMCA. In order to participate, students must be in good standing at school with proven regular attendance (2 weeks minimum of 24 hours). The school pays for the student’s membership once the student’s attendance and academic progress are verified. The student membership is only valid at the Downtown YMCA between the hours of 1pm-5pm Monday through Friday.
**If a student already has a YMCA membership, the student must log in and out for the hours to be counted. The student may also complete his/her hours at any applicable YMCA facility, not just the downtown location. The student needs to bring to school a copy of his/her valid YMCA membership card in order for the hours to be completed for school credit.
